Get ready to laugh the night away at FHN's Ha Ha Holiday Gala, part of our 2023 Festival of Trees celebration. Our evening – in an all new comedy format – will include a humorous magic show featuring fantastic card tricks from renowned funnyman Dewayne Hill, who has been featured on America's Got Talent and Comedy Central. He will also mingle with guests throughout the evening, delighting you and your friends while continuing to share his hilarious sense of humor and miraculous magic.

With every giggle, you can also feel good. Just by attending, you will help provide comfort and joy to FHN's patients and their families. This year's Gala will benefit the FHN Foundation’s ongoing campaign to upgrade hospital rooms with new beds, mattresses, and furniture, providing a more comfortable environment in which to heal and recover.

The evening will also feature delicious hors d’oeuvres, comedy-themed cocktails, and a wide array of auction packages for potential holiday gifting - or simply to treat yourself.

There will be no ticket sales at the door. FHN Gala tickets are on sale now through November 10, 2023, online or through the FHN Foundation office.
